In this video I talk about commutators and why they are so useful in coming up with your own algorithms.
Commutators are algorithm that follow the form of a b a' b' where a and b are both sub algorithms, and a' and b' are the inverse of a and b. The only pieces affected by the commutator algorithm will be pieces that intersect between the 2 sub algorithms.
Usually you will want to keep the pieces that intersect to a minimum so that most of the puzzle will remain unaffected by the algorithm.
Main commutators used in this video: Corner Cycle: 1: (R' D' R) 2: U' 1': (R' D R) 2': U
Corner Twist: 1: (R' D R D' R' D R) 2: U' 1': (R' D' R D R' D' R) 2': U
Edge Cycle: 1: (F R' F') 2: M 1': (F R F') 2': M'
Edge Flip: 1: (U' R' U R F R' F') 2: M 1': (F R F' R' U' R U) 2': M'
